Object Flight Path
I remember I was out of school playing outside in my backyard. I was alone and playing by myself. It's been many a years so I don't really know what I was playing and I was the only person at home, my Mom was at work and my sister was next door at the babysitter's house.
I just happened to look up and saw the object. It was grey in appearance and motionless. I stopped and remained motionless myself to be sure that it wasn't moving. I thought at first it was a helicopter but it made no sound what so ever. And even a helicopter can't be that still and I would've seen the rotors or heard them. And it was absolutely motionless which convinced me it wasn't a balloon, helicopter or any other craft I had seen in the area. MacDill Air Force Base was a short distance from my house so I was very familiar with all sorts of aircraft that flew over my house and in the area. I remember vividly just staring at it trying to gauge just what it was. I am 57 years old now and this happened when I was 9 so obviously the event has stuck in my mind all these years.
After I stood there looking at it and was convinced it wasn't going anywhere I ran into my house through the backdoor in hopes of getting a better view of it in the front of my house. I lived in one of the small houses that were built for the Ybor City cigar workers back in the late 1800's and early 1900's. And it couldn't take more than 10 seconds to go from the back door to the front. But after I emerged through my front door it was gone. There was no sound nor light other than reflective coming from the object.
